Togo puts in place unified social registry to better serve vulnerable populations

(Togo First) - To better identify the needs of financially vulnerable households in need of public aid, a unified social registry (RSU) is at its operationalization stage. These tools should help better target vulnerable households and individuals, across of all Togo’s regions, for the various ongoing social projects.

The initiative which was developed in partnership with the World Bank was presented during a sensitization meeting with local authorities and administrative actors, on March 6, 2019.

According to Hawa Cissé Wagué, resident representative of World Bank in Togo, the RSU will ease the institution’s actions, especially those relating to its objectives to reduce extreme poverty by 2030, and foster a strong and inclusive growth. “By properly identifying beneficiaries, we will be able to provide them subsidies needed, in the form of money transfers or through our social canteen program with Togo,” the representative added.

For Togolese authorities, the initiative aligns with a social mandate, which converges with the third axis of the national development plan (PND).
